We also welcome proposals for complete panels, which should consist of a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 4 presenters. Please note: a separate abstract and bio should be submitted for each paper. Each conference presentation should not exceed 20 minutes. You will receive an automated response when you submit and be notified of acceptance by the end of February.
